Thanks everyone, JCM that was a very good time and you were right about those hills, the one around 20 miles nearly finished me off but if I'd walked i knew it'd be so hard to start running again, they just kept on coming to after that. The jelly babies, a couple of gel packs and clear skies, well it stopped raining, kept me going.
Burning legs and blistered toes remind me how hard it was. Didn't get a chance to shower at the end i had to play "running" with the kids, a sort of warm down.
2 mile recovery slow jog tonight with the dog, rest and ice. maybe another glass of wine and cake. Trying not to look at the forthcoming events page for a least a week.
Hope everyone gets some good developments on their injuries very soon.
